Health Policy & Management

Department of Health Policy & Management

We offer degrees at the undergraduate, masters, and doctoral level that prepare students for exciting careers in health administration and public health in the U.S. healthcare system and abroad. In addition, our department houses the Center for Health Policy where faculty, staff, and students actively engage in "research that matters" to the health of Hoosiers and others.


Faculty in the department balance the theoretical and practical aspects of health policy and management. Collectively our faculty have expertise in management, policy analysis, economics, finance, healthcare law, nursing, leadership, and informatics. We work collaboratively to identify solutions to complex public health and health administration challenges.

The research arm of the department is the Center for Health Policy (CHP). The CHP has a vibrant research portfolio that is funded by a diverse set of agencies and stakeholders. Our research generally examines one or more aspects of the US healthcare system with the goal of characterizing a problem, testing a solution, or determining ways to improve health, reduce costs, and/or improve quality of care.

Faculty members in the department have active projects funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, various state agencies in Indiana, and numerous other stakeholders.
